[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Error without an obvious cause

This error is likely referring to one or more elements in your collection description.  ArchivesSpace requires each <c> element (i.e. c01, c02, etc.) to contain either a <unittitle> or <unitdate> (or both if you'd like).  In other words, the following example is valid .xml but it will not import into ArchivesSpace because there isn't a title or date associated with the <c01> for Box 1

<c01><did><container type="box">Box 1:</container></did>
<c02><did><container type="folder ">Folder 1:</container><unittitle>Biographical material</unittitle></did></c02>  ...

Hi all,

I'm seeing the following error [1] pop up in an import, but the original EAD is well-formed/valid without any (to my checking) empty elements, etc. Is there a method for getting any closer to the cause; e.g. getting a line number from the EAD?

I notice that there were some conversations about this back in Feb. and March - am I missing the resolution?

Thank you for your time & trouble.

Error: #<:ValidationException: {:errors=>{"dates"=>["one or more required (or enter a Title)"], "title"=>["must not be an empty string (or enter a Date)"]}}>
